» Making Library e-Books on the e-Book Reader Visible ACRL Tech Connect | More TechBits | Scoop.it

"Like many libraries, Florida International University (FIU) Library started an e-book reader lending program that circulates e-book readers. Each reader comes with more than one hundred titles that have been selected by subject librarians. But how can a library make these library e-books on e-book readers noticed by library users? How can a library help a user to quickly figure out what books are available on, say, a library Kindle device when those are specifically what the user is looking for?"

Which eReader is for me?

Which eReader is for me? | More TechBits | Scoop.it

Great post by the Winnipeg Public Library about features to consider when buying an eReader!

 

"...we love paper books here at the library, but recognize that there are advantages to eReaders too – they are a portable way to carry LOTS of books at once, and have some nice accessibility features that make reading easier for folks with fading vision. We can’t make your mind up for you, of course, but these are some of the main differences we have found our patrons are interested in comparing."

Consider Accessibility When Buying E-readers

Consider Accessibility When Buying E-readers | More TechBits | Scoop.it

For librarians who value equitable access to information for all, accessibility for people with disabilities should be second nature. We should automatically think about accessibility when buying resources for our library communities, including e-readers. But for the most part, we don’t. Primarily our problem is a lack of awareness.
